Oo'Glog is an Ogress City that plays an important part in the As a First Resort... quest. The bank and shops are not available until starting the quest, and the spas, which are the main attraction of the city, are a reward after completing the quest.

Oo'glog is somewhat related to Australia, which is the real habitat of eucalyptus trees and the platypus; though in the real world, there is no universally accepted plural, in RuneScape they are called platypodes.

Access

A map of Oo'glog showing some relevant features

Oo'glog lies just south of the Feldip Hunter area, a popular destination for hunters and explorers alike. Reaching the city on foot is generally not an easy matter; the most common travel hub near Oo'glog is Yanille, which lies beyond the ogre capital of Gu'tanoth, the dangerous Feldip Hills, and the jungle itself. The sea borders the eastern edge of Oo'glog and the jungle to the west, while the area to the south is, as of yet, inaccessible.

Fortunately, more experienced players may utilise a number of methods to speed up travel to the area. Those that have reached a certain point in A Fairy Tale Part II may use the fairy ring coordinates AKS to reach the southernmost area of the Feldip Hills. A Gnome glider may also be used by those that have completed One Small Favour to reach the rim of the jungle.

The Ogre Boat Ride can also be used upon reaching a certain point in Recipe for Disaster, and the Eagle transport system can be used to reach the jungle hunter area. Players with 29 Agility may also use the shortcut above the Mud bath to avoid the various aggressive creatures near the west entrance.

A very quick way for players with 57 Summoning is using a Spirit Larupia to teleport to the Feldip Hills hunter area just north of Oo'glog.

Many players consider the most convenient method to be via Charter Ship. Players that have completed As a First Resort... can use the ships, which can be found at most ports, to reach the eastern side of the city very quickly. One fast method if a player has completed the Ghosts Ahoy quest is to use the Ectophial to teleport to the Port Phasmatys area and charter a ship from there.

The charter trip can be somewhat expensive, costing up to 5,000 coins depending upon the port of departure. (From Port Phasmatys, the cost is 2,800 coins.) The price can be halved twice if the player has done the Cabin Fever quest and is wearing a Ring of charos. (From Port Phasmatys, the cost can be lowered by these methods to only 700 coins.)

Another fast method is to use a Ring of duelling or the Mobilising Armies Teleport in the regular spellbook to teleport to Mobilising Armies Command centre and run to Oo'glog from there. There is a Multicombat area with many medium-level monsters between the centre and Oo'glog, but Protect from Melee can be used to avoid all damage with prayer points then being recharged at the spa's sulphur spring.

Spa facilities

Main article: Spa

There are several spas or baths in Oo'glog. From west to east, these are:

  • Bandos pool: Temporarily marks the player as a follower of Bandos, which is useful in the God Wars Dungeon.
  • Sulphur spring: Restores Prayer points and boosts them about 10-15% above the player's normal maximum level. For example, a player with level 70 Prayer would go to 78 points, while a player with 50 Prayer would go to 57. The prayer point boost lasts indefinitely until used, unlike the effects of the other four spas.
  • Salt water spring: Provides unlimited run energy for a period of time, depending on the player's Agility level.
  • Thermal bath: Cures disease, cures poison, provides immunity to poison for a period of time, restores all stats, and temporarily boosts hit points about 15-20% above the player's normal maximum level. (The bath thus has combined similar effect to Sanfew Serum and the Elidinis statuette in Nardah.)
  • Mud bath: Temporarily boosts the player's Hunter level by 8, and removes their scent so while hunting they do not need to remove their scent from traps.

Temporary effects wear off over the course of a few minutes, but these often last long enough to give the player significant advantages for a while. The hit point boost degrades at a rate of 1 point every 60 seconds.

Players may use the spas even if they have familiars summoned. When the player enters the spa, the familiar goes to the spiritual plane but returns immediately when the player leaves the spa. (Prior to an update in 2009, familiars were not allowed in the spas, and the city's inhabitants would prevent a player from entering a spa while a familiar was present.)

Bank

The Ogress bankers of Oo'glog

There is a bank in the central area of the city. The bank is not popular for trading and bank sales, but many players may store items gained from Hunting due to the nearby hunting grounds, therefore making it an alternative to banks at Yanille or Castle Wars. The bank is usable just after starting the As a First Resort... quest.

Balnea and 2 Ogress bankers are found in the bank. See Balnea's article for dialogue before the quest is started.

This bank is only accessible after the player starts the quest As A First Resort.

Shops

There are three shops in Oo'glog. The shops are usable just after completing the As a First Resort... quest.

Oo'glog general store

The general store sells ogre clothing. Frawd the store keeper will also make players Davy kebbit hats.

Food shop

The owner of the shop, Chargurr sells both cooked and raw meat.

This shop is widely known to sell raw bird meat which is necessary to produce a Spirit Terrorbird pouch.

Salon

There is a salon where players may speak to Kringk for an ogre wig which costs 50 coins, or get a "facial" from Muggh (actually a lump of mud applied to your face that occupies the helmet slot). The "facial looks like a hand print over your face. The "facial" crumbles away when removed.

The Salon's Exquisite hairdressing machines

Woodcutting facilities

There are eucalyptus and achey trees to the west of the city. Travel north of the west entrance of the city to reach the area. This area is the only area so far in RuneScape to have eucalyptus trees.

Hunter facilities

Near the west entrance of the city these creatures can be hunted:

Note: Only baby platypodes can be caught.

Trivia

  • The music title 'Spa Bizarre' may be a play on words with Biarritz, France. Biarritz is a popular tourist destination and features several spas.
  • Oo'glog was featured in the 2009 April Fools event where a person had to kick a cabbage from the farm near Draynor Village to Oo'glog, to be greeted by the mighty Brassica Prime.
  • When using unlock hint for the music track 'Bish Bash Bosh', it says "This music was unlocked during As a First Resort... even though some players might have gone to the forests west of Oo'glog and not started As a First Resort...
A player walking on water.
  • Some players claim that the Bandos pool has little practical use, as its effect is only of use in the God Wars Dungeon. The time it takes to get to the dungeon means the effect will soon wear off after getting there. It is still useful, however, if the player plans to go to a part of the dungeon where there are no followers of Bandos. The effect protects the player in the centre of the dungeon and allows time to get to a place without Bandos followers.
  • The unlimited run energy from the salt water spring is particularly useful for players going to the God Wars Dungeon. The path to the dungeon's entrance drains run energy, resulting in players having to walk through a wolf-infested Multicombat area, but the spring's effect counteracts the energy drain.
  • The Spas in Oo'glog sometimes glitch, allowing players to walk on water.
  • Due to an update on 9 November 2009, steam from the pools in Oo'glog shouldn't make players slightly transparent any more.
